If you cannot see on your screen what's going on as it is broken, flashing stock via Odin seems to be your best bet. You should be able to find the right one for your country on sammobile.

Turn off phone then boot into download mode (power+volume down)
Give it a minute then press volume up.

Connect to Odin.

Put .tar image in PDA section and press start.

It will say pass in Odin when it's done.

That's it, easy.

really? how long would i know before its done? and if i just put a sim in afterwards would it ring with out all the setup? just so i could check its working?

The screen is broken so it would cost me 150 to repair or sell it for 80 to recycle site as it is but with out custom roms.

or sell it on ebay for maybe 100?

Im now trying to find the right tar file thing!

the phone was a EE provided one but i unlocked it so should it be flashed with BTU or just the EE firmware which is I9505XXUAMDD for and old one or I9505XXUFNC4 for a new one.

thought it would be better on a old firmware knox purposes as this phone is pre knox

i don't think that will be a problem if it is to repair your screen..it'll be a problem when you send to repair your phone software.
